Event description

Description

The House by Helen Pitt
Winner of the 2018 Walkley Book Award

The dramatic story of the Sydney Opera House and the people who made it.
‘From the very beginning the Opera House was conceived as an ornament for Sydney – like a pendant to adorn
the neck of this beautiful city.’ Helen Pitt
In this talk Helen extrapolates on the unashamedly working class role that local Marrickville NSW Premier Joe
Cahill played in making it all happen. A man who had never seen an opera in his life.
